Kitties are really smart too. Our tap water recently turned rather salty after the influx of vacationers. The high usage must have flushed the pipes out or something. Anyways, Sampson had been slapping the water out of his water container thingy. He sees me opening a jug of spring water and drinking a glass today. He caught on to that fast and "put in" for some too. I'm sure those with Kitties know what that means. So I drained his tank of what I think is salty water and gave him a fresh bowl of spring water.
I sure got some loving tonight. Just in case they actually understand what we say, I told him we can't have spring water all the time, just until they get the pipes fixed. I already run the water through a filter normally.
